Panther Ausf. G 1/15 (RC)
Another big German kitty
About this creation
Well here it is the well renowned Panther that terrorized the eastern front. This build was a very enjoyable and I think that it came out very well (except some of the proportioning of the turret). When I was building it I wanted to keep improving my techniques for vehicles so for this build and all others beyond it that incorporate torsion bars; will have a realistic layout for them (on most vehicles the torsion bars are staggered on both sides. This means that the road wheels aren't in-line if you look at a vehicle from the side ). Tis is one of my most detailed builds so far because I based it off of my 1/35th Tamiya Panther Ausf. G.

It features 2 XL motors with 1:1 ratio to the drive sprockets for a balanced speed and torque.
Turret traverse and elevation, and a full torsion bar suspension for a smooth ride.











some SNOT work on the front glacis




The ball MG mount was abit difficult to mount so I talked to a friend in real life and he came up with a technique for it, Thanks a lot Curt W. for the help








hatches for The power. no lights this time. Also the gun travel lock in the center.





The 12 Tooth bevel gears are for track tension like on the real vehicle. they have a ratchet and a worm gear with another gear to turn a arm that moves the rear idler wheel backwards and forwards. The ratchet reset is the 2x1 technic beams on bottom (they release tension).



A example of a tensioned track on the left and a loose track on the right



I made some side skirts for it



the torsion bar suspension at work



if you look closely at the 4x2 L arms on the right and left they are in opposite directions like the real vehicle. This solves the offset of road wheels.



a pic of it next to my 1/35th Tamiya Panther Ausf. G and a old Panther logo from a old articat snowmobile.



James just had to hop up on my desk and pose for this pic just to compare himself with the german Kitty.




Also Some problems have arisen with my parents and I involving Legos. I have already mentioned this on flickr but to those who don't know; I am forced to stop building with my legos for my senior year in-order to prepare me for college and to help me focus with 5 college classes that i will be tanking next year. I have estimated that I have roughly 4-6 builds that i can complete prior to having to stop. Of those 4-6 builds I will be rebuilding my StuG III in a Ausf. F variant with a Girls und panzer paint scheme, a Tiger 1 Ausf. H, a Sd kfz. 9/1 FAMO with wrecker crane, and finally a King tiger with lots of details, functions and some instructions for it to celebrate 1 year on Mocpages. Now I still need some ideas on what to build and it needs to be somewhat small/not incredibly complex.

Absolutely extraordinary build. Very well done. the turret seems a little small but i know how hard it can be to get proportions and such right in lego! Also a shame about how the gun seems to droop a bit, perhaps you could cheat a little and put a small dowel down there to keep it straight? overall though it is a fantastic model of the best tank of the war!

its pretty fast for its size, how come when yours gets tracked, it keeps going, but mine stops cold... RNG i guess ;)

Quoting jack kenyon This is your best work yet. Instantly recognisable, a beautifully sleek outline. Truly a deadly tank. Btw though that is the panther D turret. The G has the chin armour on the mantlet and a bigger cupola. Great work!
It's the Ausf G early version, it doesn't have the chin to prevent a shot trap.

Quoting Cade Connelly Whoah! o.O I think you should do the T95. It would be epic, and my brain would explode. I know that's not small/not incredibly complex, but maybe later. After the whole college thing blows over. Good luck!
Yeah, I would but I'm short on tracks for it (around 100). Hopefully after college.

Amazing tank. Your shaping and details are fantastic. Killer MOC.

Quoting Jerry Temple Nice, Tommy! I'm guessing this is an early Ausf. G due to the lack of the straight mantlet under the gun on later models. Wonderful tank! Incredible suspension! The one problem I see is the cupola, which looks more like an Ausf. D cupola, but it would probably be EXTREMELY hard to model the cupola in Lego.
It would have looked better if it had a MG rail on the coupola.

Mr. Styrvoky, It is unusual to see tank MOCs built in such a large scale, but you really use the advantages well here. You have captured the silhouette and the lines of the Panther almost perfectly! It is easily recognizable in the thumbnail, but in the full size pic, there are some details that really jump out. Those extra track sections on the rear really look great, as does the MG in its ball and socket mount on the front. All photographed and presented perfectly. I also really like the way you used the "Giant Black Cat" brick in the final pic. This brick is difficult to use, so most builders avoid it... but you worked it in purrrrfectly. Angrif!

Very nice job! The shaping is excellent, and I like how the suspension works. I'll be looking forward to seeing the video.

I have the Panther only from Heng Long. Your Lego version is a lot better.

Wow, so cool! The turret may be a bit flat, but the rest is spot on, especially the suspension. It's interesting that germans went through all that trouble to equalise the roadwheels, while the russians just had the wheels offset :P this is one of the most accurate models, mainly because of the track tension sprockets, that's a really cool detail that rarely makes it to functional models.
